James Tunks: Elsewhere

  • James Tunks

The new series of works, Elsewhere, combines James Tunks’ fascination with astronomical photography, indirect forms of self-portraiture and the transmutation of objects and images.

Instead of photographing stars themselves, Tunks constructs the photographs using predominately found and accumulated material that is crushed and pulverized to mirror interstellar nebula. This process forms constellations between otherwise arbitrary materials whilst at the same time echoing the history of astrophotography and its pioneers such as Edwin Hubble and EE Barnard.
